MOVIE The Call
Jordan (Hallie Barry) is a 911 operator who receives a call from a girl name Leah Templeton (Evie Thompson), who is being attacked by a serial killer. As Jordan stays on the line, she hears the killer Michael Foster( Michael Eklund) kill Leah. She tries to tell him not to do it. All he ends up saying is “Too late. It’s already done” and he hangs up. Several days later, the police find Leah’s body buried in the ground. Six months later, another 911 operator receives a call but from a different girl. Her name is Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin). Michael is at it again, and this time throws Casey in the back of his car from a public mall. What Michael doesn’t know is Casey has a phone she has been using to contact 911. As they are trying to tract down where Casey is, during the entire process anyone who is getting into Michaels’ way becomes his target. He tells Casey that it’s all her fault for him killing them because she shouldn’t be acting up, and should go along with him. The movie’s strength is that you can’t guess what is really going to happen next, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Also, the actors play their roles with the emotion and enthusiasm. There’s a couple scary scenes but not too many. It’s more of a thriller than anything.
